Tacoma’s Milgard Windows & Doors is the highest online rated window and patio door brand of 2016, according to marketing analytics company MetrixLab.

The research firm’s Net Reputation Score system, which analyzes reviews from millions of websites and weighs them based on visibility and website reputation, has found that Milgard’s products have received the most positive online sentiment for all of last year and the first quarter of 2017.

“Milgard has seen a steady upward trend over the past year and continues to outperform the competition,” said Ryan Murphy, senior research manager at MetrixLab. “Scores are calculated by looking at online comments written by real people in social media, websites, blogs and review sites.”

“It’s very gratifying to hear from our customers,” said Jeremiah Noneman, marketing director at Milgard. “As they share their stories about Milgard online, it helps other homeowners make informed decisions to create the home of their dreams.”
